Hi, I’m Coach Amie, and YES, this is my before/after pic.
Years ago, my weight spiraled out of control due to medical issues with medications that shut down my metabolism, overworking myself, and putting everyone else’s needs before mine.
If you have repeatedly dieted without lasting (or any) results, I get that frustration because that’s the road I went down.
The medications had harmful cardiac side effects that also caused me to stop running.
I am not sure how much I gained in total – I stopped weighing myself because it depressed me more.
The “Before” picture wasn’t even at my heaviest as I would run away from the camera.
I felt frustrated that the real me was hidden. So
If you avoid mirrors…
have a lot of clothes that no longer fit in your closet…
think how you look and feel doesn’t represent the real you…
fear or experience judgment by others…
know you are running below your potential…
…Yep, that was me too.
To top it off, I had experienced trauma and realized I had also been using the weight to hide from the world.
It was then I decided that I had enough—the pain of going on as I was outweighed anything else.
I said NO MORE and got off all the meds.
But then… I had to start totally over with running, lose the weight, and rebuild my health from almost zero measured metabolism due to the medications.
It felt so great to release the real me that it inspired me to help others just like you to do it too.
Simply going on a diet or just trying to “run more” fails because losing weight involves many factors.
Even more as a runner!
I also got a healthier lifestyle (stress/overwork is my big ‘thing’), my self-confidence returned, and my mental/physical strength, run training ability, and race times all improved.
The “After” photo was taken at age 43, before running another ultramarathon.
When you holistically lose weight, get healthier, and run well, you gain LIFE!
I also noticed that I must have a gift for this because even before I was professionally trained and developed this Program, I helped two former roommates lose 60+ and 100 pounds each.
One is now a distance runner, and the other has become a fitness instructor.
Because… you become more like those you choose to associate with!
Do any of these sound familiar?
Join those who have transformed themselves into strong, lean, and fit runners.
With this program, women have lost unwanted weight, even after previous failed attempts, and are running better than ever.
This isn’t about a one-size-fits-all diet but focuses on improving your weight loss alongside your whole health and wellness and becoming the runner you want to be.
You’ll set clear, actionable plans and know exactly how you will achieve them.
I’ll help you get strategies to lose weight for good and reach the biggest running goals you envision in a customized program of 12 weeks to 1 year.
Phase 1 is a 12-week jump-start in which you’ll build the actionable strategies to help you avoid your biggest struggles and lose weight holistically while improving your performance in running 30-45 minutes or a 5K or 10K race.
Phases 2, 3, and 4 optionally build up to 1-year of support, accountability, and guidance to help you with more significant weight-loss goals or to maintain your loss and get conditioned and trained for a half-, full-, or ultra-marathon.
You’ll get 1:1 meetings with a professional coach trained in holistic weight loss and running, so you can stay on track toward your goal.
Decide that it’s time to move forward and get results – schedule your consultation today.
The Marathon Lean Program is different because it’s not just about a number on the scale or some crash diet that makes you feel bad.
Instead, we look at your life holistically and where you are in your running journey so you can burn fat, be healthier and reach your goals.
Therefore, you may also improve other problems that contribute to weight loss and running woes, such as stress/mental strain, nutrition issues, or sleep problems.
So more than just weight loss – YOU get healthier, and your running improves as well.
The Method is easy to understand, and for your transformation, you get all of this:
Step 1: Schedule your free consultation so you can feel motivated, get clarification on your goals, and discover how you can make progress.
During your initial 20-minute session, you can learn about your best options and get all of your questions answered so you can feel confident knowing precisely what to do.
Step 2. Once you start the program, you’ll get an extensive baseline evaluation so you can feel empowered to take action on your goals.
This is all about YOU – examining the big picture of your life – right now.
Through this, you’ll discover things like: What is YOUR personal “why” that can help drive your weight loss goal to success? What could stop you from reaching your goals?
Your evaluation is available securely and privately online at your convenience.
Step 3: You’ll then get an in-depth, 60-90 minute focused session in which we’ll discuss your baseline evaluation, and you’ll get your personalized plan, so you can see your path forward and feel excited to head toward your success.
I’ll guide you in visualizing YOU at your BEST into a written, motivating description.
Plus, you’ll get clear, realistic milestones with an actionable plan so you can move forward toward it.
Let’s eliminate “can’t” and focus on “can”!
Step 4. I’ll work with you week-by-week to set goals and fundamental, concrete strategies so you can feel confident, see your progress and discover what works for YOU.
You’ll get your blueprint for success – and be held accountable for following your personalized plan so you can feel motivated to develop the habits that will get you to your goals.
Your 1:1 sessions are by your choice of a phone call or videoconference so that you can save more time.
I’ll check in on your progress so you’ll always have accountability and your questions answered.
I’ll help you set new milestones as you reach your goals and further customize your personalized strategy to get lean, be at your healthiest, and feel and run your best.
By the end of the program, you can lose excess weight and enhance your self-confidence and your ability to reach your ultimate goals – which can include running a 5K, 10K, or a half-, full-, or ultra-marathon.
Instead of trying random things that don’t stick, you will also have a detailed, written, and practiced weight loss strategy that works for you and your life.
You will have a new holistically healthy lifestyle that supports your goals and running achievements, so in addition to weight loss, you can go from demotivated to feeling energized.
Schedule today and move forward to your goals!
Despite being 39, Steph is back to what she weighed in her 20s. While losing weight, she also attained more self-confidence and is setting new running records.
Before starting The Marathon Lean Program, she went to a run club and felt self-conscious that she was the slowest one.
People had to stop and wait for her, so she didn't return.
After Marathon Lean Program, she passes those same runners in races, breaks PRs, and will soon run her own Boston Qualifier.
She says:"I had been in an overweight category for over a decade. My biggest fear was that I was going to sabotage my health and marathon PR goals if I continued to remain overweight.
Coaching is an unregulated business, so anyone can call themselves a coach and make commissions selling you products, supplements, or extreme diets that you don’t need or may be unsafe for you as a runner – or even your life.
Or through pushing one-size-fits-all exercise programs that don’t work for you, diet methods that don’t work for runners, or a woman’s metabolic needs.
Instead, in The Marathon Lean Program, you’ll get the support, guidance, and accountability you need so you can reach your goals and improve holistically for the long run.
You get a program geared toward achieving your goals through evidence-based, proven principles.
Working with a professional who knows all about run training paired with weight loss, you get a comprehensive total package.
Therefore, you are not asked to buy supplements or use diets or workout programs that may not be right for you or your running.
The techniques are derived from the gold standard of professional coaching with a weight-loss focus, combined with extensive running knowledge to get optimal results.
Maurina got her and her child away from an abusive partner along with a divorce, but she had to start her life over entirely.
She felt that her weight loss and running were empowering.
You can also achieve a holistic, balanced, healthy lifestyle that has also included benefits such as:
You get a whole-person-centered approach that listens to you and works with you to get the motivation, guidance, and accountability you need to succeed and achieve your personal goals.
You will not find unrealistic promises in this Program, but you will get strategies that work to achieve your goals long-term.
You can gain the holistic, healthy body and lifestyle that gets you your best running and life.
Everyone who has gone through the Program with me has lost weight! (I will rewrite this if it ever changes, but I don’t think it will 😉 )
People say they wish they would have started this long ago, but there is a saying that goes… “The best time to plant a tree was ten years ago… the next best time is NOW!”
Only you can decide where you will be from here!

Sharee had lost over 100 lbs in the past but had gone through profound life changes and setbacks, leading to re-gain.
It affected her entire life; plus, her former weight loss methods no longer seemed to work for her, and she was demotivated.
We didn’t use the scale because she felt she got obsessed with it, so instead, her initial goal (that she reached) was to fit into a favorite pair of jeans and wear them out proudly.
She feels motivated by her ideal vision to reach her ideal weight, ran her first 10K in years, and is continuing her training to run her first marathon!
I customize the Program to your needs so you can meet your individual goals.
Rather than a short-term fix, the Marathon Lean Program helps you lose and sustain weight loss for the long run so that you can reach your overall goals in running – and life.
Phase 1 is a 12-week jump-start in which you’ll build the actionable strategies to help you avoid your biggest struggles and lose weight holistically while training for or improving your time in running 30-45 minutes or a 5K or 10K race.
While participants lose weight in the first 12 weeks, it’s often said that weight loss is a marathon, not a sprint.
The subsequent phases gradually help you lose more weight if needed, train for your goal, AND continue solidifying your new lifestyle, so it sticks.
Phases 2, 3, and 4 optionally build up to 1-year support, accountability, and guidance to help you with more significant weight-loss goals or to maintain your loss and get conditioned and trained for a half-, full-, or ultra-marathon.
In your free consultation, you’ll get goal clarification and learn the best options for reaching it based on your needs.
This program will discover the strategies that work for you, personally, to lose weight.
Once you unlock your personalized code of what works for you, you can continue to lose any amount of weight that gets you to your ideal weight, size, or personal target.
By the end of the program, you will have your strategy mapped out, which saves you money as you are not paying for a program or special foods you are reliant on for the rest of your life.
Although no weight loss program can guarantee results, the Marathon Lean Program works for those who work The Program… During the initial 12-week program phase, clients have lost that stubborn last 5-10 lbs up to 40 lbs and have continued to lose weight with their customized strategies throughout the program and beyond.
Clients entering the program usually have 30-40+ pounds to lose and are ready to commit to becoming the person they want to be.
This program is specifically designed for those who like to run and works best for returning or novice runners.
Current runners have successfully used the program – if done outside of formal marathon training – not in the middle of heavy race training.
For a number of reasons, it’s not advisable to be in the middle of marathon training and then try to start to lose weight at the same time.
Many newer or returning runners find this program helps them lose weight, stick to their running programs, and find motivational strategies to make their running and nutritional habits last.
Existing long-distance runners have found this program has worked to get weight loss when nothing else has.
In addition to weight loss and improved running – it benefits your health! And let’s be honest, who doesn’t want better health?
Yes, but we are all individuals, so your progress will depend on how much weight you want to lose, how you respond to training, and how much you put into it.
This is a holistic program, which means it is more than just running or going on a diet.
The best runners can put forth the effort to get enough sleep, keep stress at reasonable levels, and have the desire to live a healthier life.
This isn’t to say you must be perfect at it or do it all from day 1.
One thing is for sure – you know you won’t be there if you don’t decide to move forward.
A marathon or ultra takes a serious commitment – but if you are seriously motivated to make your goal – I’m here to help you do it!
You can run an actual in-person race or a virtual one or complete the distance on your own.
In my training plans, the workouts are done with what you have – you don’t need to go to a gym.
We do not sell or push supplements, shakes, pills, or fad diets.
We’ve all seen others call themselves coaches because they sell supplements.
And, I’d be suspicious of anyone who tried those methods.
Just because those supplements or that extreme diet plan may (or may not!) have worked for them does not mean it will work for you and may even be dangerous.
Some supplements also do not work well for running because many have dangerous cardiovascular side effects that do not work well with exercise.
If a supplement or diet plan worked for everybody, everyone would have bought it by now.
Instead, The Marathon Lean System for weight loss is a program where you get to work with a Nationally Certified, experienced professional coach to discover the blueprint of what works for YOU, your running, and your lifestyle.
A saying coined by endurance athlete and women’s health researcher Dr. Stacey Sims says, “Women are not small men.”
Women can have very different needs and weight loss strategies than a man. Our hormone systems, metabolisms, and response to exercise are not the same.
This is why fad diets can also be more dangerous for women. Many of the studies on weight loss and endurance – have been done on men in their 20s!
So if a man tries to fit you into a program that worked for him or generically brings up studies that say a specific diet or way of working out should work for you – I’d take that with a grain of salt.
We’ve all seen the guys who cut creamer from their coffee or similar and lost weight and didn’t get why it didn’t work for us.
Or maybe you’ve felt the pull of emotional eating, or have gotten to certain times of the month (or your life) where going running feels like you’ve hit a brick wall, and they can’t understand… and let’s be honest, who wants to explain things like that to a male coach anyway.
I specialize in helping women lose weight and excel at running not only because I have been there – but because, through experience, I know that you need that type of specialization to get actual results.
I encourage you to try it on your own if you haven’t – you may succeed!
However, I’m guessing that you may have already tried it yourself, or you wouldn’t be here right now.
Many also think they know what they need to do. But if that worked for you, let’s be honest, it would be working right now.
Things won’t change until you make your life and your health a priority and take the first step to change them.
Set up your free consultation today, and let’s move forward.
Although this program is based on research and is backed by success, weight loss can be viewed as a marathon, not a sprint.
So weight loss and running goals can be similarly challenging, but that’s why you’ll have help along the way.
Sometimes you may backtrack, but it’s not about being perfect, and you won’t be expected to be.
It’s about what gets you results in the long-term and works with your life so you avoid the crash diet mentality or having to continually start over with running, so you can instead get strategies that stick.
Step 1, realize that nothing changes until you prioritize yourself and take action.
And what’s more important than your health and wellbeing?
In reality, there is no perfect time to do anything.
There will always be something else going on; the difference is when you make a stand and decide that It’s time to be proactive.
And, taking care of yourself forms the foundation for anything else in your life.
Because how can you be a role model or give your best to others if you are not at your best?
Not making a choice is still a choice, and due to the unique nature of this program, space is limited.
Only you – and not anyone else – can and must decide that you are the priority and it’s time to invest in yourself.
Alongside private weight-loss coaching, you have the option of having:
You can also get remote sessions with a Registered Sports Dietitian for specific meal planning or medical nutrition guidance.
